French term or phrase:un ghetto mercantile
Context: "Cette nouvelle production graphique qui fait appel à d'indéniable talents artistiques, va rapidement éveiller le mépris des critiques d'art qui vont la reléguer dans un ghetto mercantile, et la considérer comme un art mineur". This sentence is particularly tricky and I would be most grateful for any suggestions for how to translate it. It's talking about new advertising art in posters in the nineteenth century.
